DAPOXETINE 60MG DESCRIPTION
POXET 60MG contains Dapoxetine which belongs to the group of medicines called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. It is used in the treatment of premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is a common male sexual disorder in which the male ejaculates sperms very early with less sexual stimulation and before he wants to. It is caused mainly due to hormonal imbalance, abnormal levels of brain chemicals or any other local infections or disease affecting the sexual organs.
Dapoxetine delays ejaculation (release of semen) by increasing the activity of a particular chemical called serotonin in the brain. This promotes control over ejaculation and helps to hold sperms for a longer duration of time. Prior to the treatment, your doctor would perform certain tests to access whether you have or at risk of developing severe low blood pressure while stand up.
Take POXET 60MG at least 1-3 hours before anticipated sexual activity. Avoid consumption of alcohol or grapefruit juice while taking POXET 60MG (PRILIGY). Before taking POXET 60MG inform your doctor if you have any history of bleeding disorders or mental disorders. It should not be used in patients without any sexual problems.
POXET 60MG is not recommended for use in patients with liver or heart problems. It is also not suitable for use in children or adolescents (below 18 years). Inform your doctor immediately if you experience dizziness upon standing up suddenly or if you experience sudden mood changes or suicidal thoughts after taking POXET 60MG. The most common side effects of taking POXET 60MG are dizziness, nausea, tiredness, increased sweating, restlessness and decrease in sex drive. Consult your doctor if any of the side effect troubles you.
USES OF POXET 60MG
- Treats premature ejaculation in adult men (18 – 64 years of age)
HOW POXET 60MG WORKS
POXET 60MG delays ejaculation by blocking the reuptake of a neurotransmitter called serotonin between the nerve cells. This increases the activity of serotonin within the brain which increases the time taken to release semen (ejaculate) and can improve the control over the ejaculation during sexual intercourse.
